A great event is coming up to garner support for the New Group, a young, active and forward-thinking membership tier of the ICA Boston and a program it generates, Vita Brevis, which offers opportunities for artists to create works of contemporary installation art around Boston. SCD did the invite, and it promises to be a wonderful evening. The event theme, SEE, BE SEEN was also named by SCD, and is based on the current exhibition, "Likeness: Portraits of Artists by Other Artists." To purchase tickets, become a member of the New Group or donate to the cause, visit the membership log-in page at http://icaboston.bloostone.org/annualbenefit
Even if you can't make the benefit, definitely try and attend the show, which will be up for the next month or so. There are wonderful, thought-provoking contemporary works there by a diverse group of relevant artists. Accompanying the show is a fantastic film series with films about Andy Warhol, Francesca Woodman, and other enigmatic artists. The museum offers free admittance after work on Wednesday evenings, a great way to get to know this marvellous venue better.
I have been on the steering comittee for 2 years, and I am so looking forward to growing with the ICA. A new building, with spectacular views of the Boston waterfront is in the works, designed by Diller + Scofidio-- to find out more about the ICA visit their website, a link is provided in my "Links of Interest" section.
